Belton, TX – 11/25/2017

It is the weekend after Thanksgiving and it is good to be out walking again. After registering we parked at Confederate Park and started our urban hike.

Pavilion along Nolan Creek.

Rotary Club War Memorial


We pass the Bell County courthouse decorated for Christmas.

A peek inside the Art Deco Belltonian Theater which is once again open for business.

This store was opened at this site in 1884. In 1917 ownership changed and the store was given the current name of Cochran, Blair and Potts.

We deviated from the walk route to check out the new mural located on the side of the store.

Cute little Art Deco building is a former bus depot. It is also a NRHP.
